    Lebron: “Get rid of your bench and I’ll join you”

    Warriors: “Bet”

    *Clears Bench*

    LeBron: “Nah I’m signing with the rockets”

    Don't say that too loud. The consensus is Kobe always had a superteam, especially with the likes of Lamar Odom, Andrew Bynum & Metta World Peace. Now THAT'S talent Lebron never played with

    Lebron's camp has already denied this, according to Stephen A. Smith. He also said Lebron is not happy that this is even a report (a false one, at that). It's not happening. More trash click-bait by the ever-sinking ESPN.

    If Lebron is serious about this, what he's not thinking about is that if he joins the Warriors, he's essentially the default Point Guard AGAIN, and AGAIN he'll be in a situation where he's surrounded with great players who defer to him on the court, and Lebron gets frustrated AGAIN with having to force the offense through him AGAIN when he's on the court.

    The beauty of Houston is its finally a situation where its obvious, Lebron is playing with two point guards who are arguably better at running the offense than he is. If he's really craving a situation where he can finally move back into a secondary role where the offense isn't relied on him on every possession, Houston is a great fit for him.

    ........

    Of course, in GS, Lebron would be incredible, and that team would be incredible. It would be pretty unfair and be bad for the competitive nature of the league. I think Lebron is well aware of the narrative he'd have labeled on him, and how he'd be massacred by the media, and the fans.

    Still he might do it even though I think the same frustrations that followed him his whole career would still exist in GS. Houston is one of the rare opportunities he'll have in his remaining peak years to finally play with someone who allows him to take a step back, and not have the weight of the franchise on his shoulders every night. That weight is obvious, and makes the game miserable for this guy. You can see it in his face when he plays every game.

    Does ESPN know there are other teams in the NBA?
    I feel like they think it's a 6 team league.
    GSW, Lakers, OKC, Cavs, Celtics, Knicks.

    Talk about no parity. This would be bad for league business. Don't see if happening. This superteam garbage is bad for business. Teams in lesser markets will start to lose fans. Fans showing up at games and fans tuning into TV. Who the hell is interested in watching a team play that has no chance of winning? Boring.

    If This is true, Lebron needs to make a clear public statement saying this will never happen and call out ESPN

    I'm not sure how they could create max room unless everyone gets traded or becomes a FA except for Curry

    Why wouldn't he listen? Doesn't mean that's his first choice
